i read the entire tweakheadz' guide to producing electronic music, it was pretty useful...

http://www.tweakheadz.com/guide.htm

not every part translates directly to using trackers/vsti, as a lot of it is based around hardware knowledge, but it's still a very interesting and useful read. i especially learned a lot about using compression and EQ. they also have a forums area where you can post songs and get critiques from likeminded people, some of whom run professional mastering studios, etc

Nice article / tutorial on compression. :)


grrr. two things about it annoyed me,

"In a nutshell, it squashes the loudest peaks and boosts the quieter troughs" - huh? it boosts the quieter peaks - be they positive or negative. (trough does not mean quiet peak - it is the lowest point on the wave, ie: the negative peaks)

and then it has hard+soft knee in the table... with 0 explanation of what that means.

I gues that medicians use a hammer to determine if knee is hard or soft :).
